Real Doctor, Beautiful Results
In the past doctors have recommended waiting one year before starting to treat a new scar. Today, surgeons have learned to appreciate that the surgical mantra of waiting for a year to allow a scar to “mature” before intervening is no longer recommended, as this approach will lead to suboptimal results. Early laser intervention has been shown to be the gold standard for scar management.
Dr. Friedman tailors three different cutting edge laser systems to the individual scar.
Generally patients undergo 2-4 treatment sessions with one treatment every 2 months. Dr. Friedman treats the following scars:
Traumatic Scars and Surgical Scars
Even the best of facelifts, body surgery to remove excess skin, skin cancer or mole removal can result in a scar. It is best not to “wait” for the scar to magically disappear but in order to obtain the best aesthetic outcome, to start treatment as soon as possible.
Treatments are usually performed with a Pulse Dye Laser as well as Fractionated CO2 or Fractionated Pico lasers and are performed every two months until the degree of improvement is achieved.
Burn scars can not only be aesthetically disfiguring but can be associated with itching, pain and range of movement limitation. Lasers have become the mainstay in treating burn scars. Laser treatments are performed with the Pulse Dye laser as well as the Fractionated CO2.
